The sunny days are back as Spring begins to taste like Summer in Barcelona. Time to get ready for the Summer festival season, starting with Primavera Sound, the leading event (along with the Sonar Festival). This year’s edition includes more than 70 bands featuring big names like The Cure, Franz Ferdinand, Wilco, Justice and The Rapture (Björk cancelled a few days ago) and a perfect selection of leading indie artists like Beach House, Atlas Sound, Beirut, Grimes, The Walkmen, The XX, M83 to name a few.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
